Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Before any effective learning can take place all students must feel that they are in a safe and supportive environment where they have a voice that will be heard and expectations regarding student behaviour and attitude are high. 

Kurmond Public School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school. We maintain high standards in the areas of Safety, Responsibility and Courtesy for students, staff and our community. We teach our students that it is through sustained Effort that true Achievement takes place. Hence our school motto “Success Through Endeavour”.

We do not tolerate any form of bullying behaviour in our school. We have proactive programs teaching our students how to relate socially with others and what to do when inappropriate behaviours are received or witnessed.

We also implement child protection programs, drug education lessons and values programs on an annual basis. Should your child have any concerns with behaviour in our school it is important that you talk with us directly so that we can make effective interventions as soon as possible.
